ACU community participates in Salvation Army "Adopt an Angel"

For Immediate Release
Nov. 23, 1999

Abilene Christian University faculty and students have an opportunity to make Christmas wishes come true for 500 children by adopting an angel through the Salvation Army.

Agencies refer children to the Salvation Army from underprivileged or low-income families where Christmas cheer might be sparse. Adopting an angel means buying a present and wrapping it for the child of choice with the information provided. Presents collected will be delivered to the children's homes.

There is an angel wall in ACU's McGlothlin Campus Center. For every angel adopted, an angel is affixed to the wall.

The ACU Students' Association has been conducting "Adopt an Angel" since Monday, Nov. 15. So far 300 children have been adopted. The Students' Association goal is to have 500 angels adopted by Nov. 30.
